Manager Jim Guerinot tells Billboard.com that the timing for the free digitial download felt right because "we just put a record out [and] we're going on-sale with tickets."

He adds that Reznor's "been in a prolific phase and we didn't want 'business' to get in the way of getting the art in the hands of the fans. We've looked at the climate and the many advantages of being able to do whatever we want without bureaucracy."

Guerinot also reports to Billboard.com that Reznor "worked again with his team of Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross out of his garage" on "The Slip" and says word of the album came late.

"[Trent] let me know there was some new music coming and the next thing I knew there was a full-length record done. . . . It's very exciting to be finishing mixing on Thursday, mastering Friday, finishing artwork on Saturday and having the world hear it [Monday morning]!"
